I have my completed my first run through the Kansas City Royals prospects list for 2019. The preliminary results are listed below. Can you match the grades with the names?

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Four
Grade B-: Six
Grade C+: 39 (!)
Grade C: A bunch of others

They lack depth at the top but have a huge mass of C+ prospects, many of them young enough to improve as they advance. More on this when we finish the Top 20 report. The names:
